July 8, 2021

Rydal Penrhos has appointed Damisola Animashaun as joint-Deputy Head Boy for the 2021/22 academic year.

The position of Deputy Head Boy is an important one at Rydal Penrhos. Those fortunate enough to attain the role act as a strong support system to the Head Boy and Girl team throughout the academic year, in addition to providing younger members of the school community with assistance and a role model they can aspire to once they reach Year 13.

Last year’s joint-Deputy Head Boy team of Kevin Farrell and Morgan Kendall gave an incredible amount in difficult circumstances. Despite having a period of their time studying at home during the second educational lockdown, the duo kept spirits up with special events to promote wellbeing and also managed to lend support to some fundraising occasions for worthy causes in the region and beyond.

Kevin and Morgan are now awaiting their A Level examination results and preparing for the next stage of their journey at higher education. They leave with our gratitude and we are confident Rydal Penrhos has prepared them exceptionally for future success.

Looking ahead to the 2021/22 academic year, Rydal Penrhos is pleased to announce that Damisola Animashaun has secured the role of joint-Deputy Head Boy from September.

Damisola joined the school as a Year 9 pupil in 2017 and has flourished under the expert leadership of Rydal Penrhos’ incredible staff team. He developed quickly into a strong academic, which was further reflected in some truly outstanding GCSE results last summer.

The pupil secures five 9s in Business, French, Geography, Mathematics and Religious Studies, in addition to two 8s in English (1st Language) and English Literature.

Damisola also attained a distinction in Additional Mathematics and three A* grades in Biology, Chemistry and Physics to round-off a superb set of GCSE results that he worked exceptionally hard for.

He is now studying Business, Further Mathematics and Economics at A Level in pursuit of yet more exam accolades next summer.

Not only this, but Damisola has achieved high levels in challenges set by the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust, has turned out for the school’s rugby team and even performed on stage as part of the Speech and Drama Comedy Night.

Damisola was also part of the Rydal Penrhos team that won a prestigious Enterprise Challenge set by Lancaster University School of Management recently, which s one of the biggest management schools in the country and one of the few that has a large enterprise section.

Congratulations to Damisola on a well-deserved appointment. Everyone at Rydal Penrhos is absolutely thrilled for you and wishes you all the very best of luck in the role.
